Sarah Palin's Reading Material Is Off Limits!


KING: Should you have not done the Katie Couric interview?

KING: You should have done it?

PALIN: I should have done it, yes. And her questions were fair. Obviously, being a bit annoyed with some of the questions, my annoyance shows through.

The Woman Who Wouldn't Go Away

A die-hard Democrat in town got this note last week from the governor:

"Dear Neighbor," it began. "As Governor of Alaska, I am pleased to tell you about a very special offer: now you can receive an official Alaska travel guide -- absolutely FREE."
